Weird ; is it legal ?

  • 1

Hi everyone, Today, I had not much to do, so I decided to go walk a little bit in the Montreal's Chinatown.

I entered in a chinese market, and I saw something really weird. I saw for the first time a frozen complete turtle ( with the shell and everything ). So I am wondering is it legal to sell / eat turtle in canada (Qu├ębec) ? They are not protected animal ?!

If it's legal how do you eat it ?
